Guildford, UK — Imagineer Systems, creators of the Academy Award-winning mocha Planar Tracking technology, and CoreMelt, a provider of advanced video plug-in effects, has released TrackX powered by mocha.
The latest Apple Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) plug-in to come out of the strategic partnership between Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt, TrackX powered by mocha leverages the Planar Tracking technology to precisely track camera motion, objects and people for seamless visual effects and screen composites. "TrackX powered by mocha is a tremendous leap ahead in plug-in innovation for Final Cut Pro X," comments Ross Shain, chief marketing officer, Imagineer Systems. "CoreMelt has taken Imagineer's innovative Planar Tracking engine and added a simple-to-use plug-in interface, giving Final Cut Pro X editors a powerful, yet easy-to-use set of tools to manage complex tracking projects with exacting precision. No need to leave the timeline or learn a complicated VFX program. The Final Cut user community [can] create these advanced visual effects directly inside their favorite editor."
Ideal for creating realistic screen inserts, set extensions and sky replacements, TrackX powered by mocha lets FCP X editors easily track and replace objects within a video, such as an image on a cell phone, TV screen or sign, as well as add graphics and text, including lower-thirds, to follow objects in motion. TrackX's customizable parameters provide FCP X editors with controls to fine-tune translation, scale, rotation and perspective motion of text and video, eliminating the need to do manual keyframing. Designed to manage the most difficult tracking challenges, mochatechnology stays locked on through shaky, grainy and motion-blurred video.
TrackX powered by mocha features three powerful plug-ins:
- Simple Tracker: Instant tracking perfect for quick floating lower thirds or graphics following a person or object
- Track Layer: Advanced tracking with perspective shifts, surface mapping and masking capabilities
- Track Text: Includes a text generator that can track text with perspective and masking capabilities
TrackX powered by mocha is available now and is priced at $99.
